If you don't care to use code then this is a great text display.
The fact that you can insert inline CSS style and HTML took me to achieve more than what I originally needed.
It would be fantastic if the developers can upgrade this mod to be capable of playing more than one instance of the module on the same article.
It doesn't display news it displays manually typed in text.
Rename it to Text Ticker and then this module will do what it says.
Might be useful for some other applications but not for news display.
The fade effect is a bit on the "not so good" side too. It fades in nicely to a point but when it switches to the next section it pops up without an effect. So you get a fade out -pop in effect instead of a more stylish fade in - fade out.
If you have an image to display this way it's a bit of an eye sore.
This certainly is something most of the other tickers lack, even better its from a trusted source like shap5.
Thanks guys, this is what i was looking for after discovering that other tickers do not fill this need.
One extra thing I would like to see would be the ability to customise the text, i.e. font, style and colour on a line by line basis but even without that it is great!
I needed a way to display -MY- messages. It is perfect for that. You get 10 separate messages to roll through, can adjust the speed between fades, the length of time before switching messages, can use html in the messages, can choose which position it shows in... This is great for the hands on web-op who has a need to change / send specific messages.
For the creative, you can use this to have 10 fading/rotating ads in a module, and all you need to know is the html language to put in the areas.
Sweet mod. Thanks a ton.
To the review of mike123acc I have to say that he obviously expected this module to be something it isn't and as such his review is incorrect, he should have read the description before writing it.
Rudolfe was obviously looking for a similar product as mike123acc but understood this wasn't what he needed.
What I could use as an extra is a component interface where i can enter the parameters and lines of text so it is easier for managers to change the data. For now this module will do for me.
